The best thing about the fashion world's consciousness already being steeped in Autumn/Winter 2010 is that it is still high summer and there are some real treasures to be found in the summer sales. Reading any fashion magazine at the moment, it would be easy to forget this fact, thanks to the current focus on pre collections and transitional pieces 'to see you through until winter'.
On my radar at the moment is this adorable striped playsuit from New York label Alice + Olivia. It would work equally well in the city as it would on holiday or at a festival; depending on how you wear it. As it is 100% silk, you know it will fall beautifully and the belt will ensure that you don't completely lose your waist (a common playsuit pitfall), ensuring that it will look super feminine. Make this investment now and watch your style stock soar!
